Google CEO explains why Donald Trump shows up in ‘idiot’ search results

Google CEO explains why Donald Trump shows up in ‘idiot’ search results”

"You've got nearly 90,000 employees". It's not bias of company employees.

Pichai replied by saying Google's searches are based on multiple factors that determine the end result.

Although he noted issues of privacy and political bias as well as a widening gap of distrust between tech companies and the American people, McCarthy said on "The Story with Martha MacCallum" that Google's next steps in China concern him the most. Another Ohio Representative, Steve Chabot, criticized Google Search over its negative coverage of the GOP's attempt to replace Obamacare as positive or what he deems neutral coverage of the thereof was nowhere to be found on the first several pages of the tool's results.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler of NY, the committee's top Democrat, called the notion of bias a "delusion" and a "right-wing conspiracy theory".

Yet one Democratic lawmaker lobbed his own allegation of bias against Google.

Caravan migrants declare hunger strike to pressure US
That prompted Border Patrol agents to launch tear gas and pepper spray balls to quell the unrest. Homeland Security says it has identified 600 identified criminals within the caravan.

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) did not disappoint. "To do otherwise would go against our core principles and our business interests", according to remarks prepared for the hearing. "There may be a Google service you may have opted into use".

California Democrat Ted Lieu called the hearing "a waste of time" and ridiculed the comments about constitutional rights under the First Amendment. The guy in charge of the world's biggest internet information system would never admit to wrongdoing by his company.

"Just by bumping undesirable stuff to the second page of search, Google can more or less make it disappear", he continued. "If you don't want negative search results, don't do negative things", he said. "In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that nearly all stories & news is BAD".

Republican congresswoman Zoe Lofgren asked why pictures of the USA president came up when that specific term was searched.

As it turns out, the image results for "idiot" reveals a page of mostly President Donald Trump's photos.

Trump arrives in Argentina for G20 Summit
Saudi officials have blamed the killing on rogue agents and denied the crown prince had knowledge of the operation. Tough talking is expected at the summit , especially between Trump and Xi Jinping of China, over global trade.

It served as an invitation for Pichai to delve into the technical realm and he complied.

He said "things like relevance, freshness, popularity, how other people are using it" play a part in how items are ranked so that, at any given time, that rank will show the best results for the Google search.

Lofgren responded to Pichai's explanation with this: "So it's not some little man sitting behind the curtain figuring out what we're going to show the user, it's basically a compilation of what users are generating and trying to sort through that information".

"We don't, you know, manually intervene on any particular search result", Pichai said moments later.

The CEO may also be questioned about the company's planned "Dragonfly" project, a censored search engine for China. "Right now we have no plans to launch search in China", he said during the hearing.

Melania Trump defends controversial White House holiday decorations
It's not the first time Stephen King's horror hotel movie has been mentioned in connection with the first lady's holiday tastes. Over 72,000 American deaths were caused by opiate abuse in 2017.

And he struck the obligatory patriotic note: "I've had the opportunity to travel across the country and see all the places that are powering our digital economy - from Clarksville, to Pittsburgh, to San Diego, where we recently launched a partnership with the USO to help veterans and military families.Over the past three [years], we have made direct contributions of $150 billion to the USA economy, added more than 24,000 employees, and paid over $43 billion to U.S. partners across Search, YouTube, and Android".
